Low profile in-line strainers require a minimum amount of space. To increase filter area the low profile tops can be matched with a longer bowl, (referred to as the Low Profile Long Series). The chart below shows reference dimensions for assemblies.

This series is our largest capacity strainers. They are used primarily in the same applications as the intermediate series where increased flow rate and filtration area is required. Available in port sizes from 1" to 1-1/2".
All wire mesh elements can be easily cleaned or replaced, without removing the entire strainer from the line, by removing the bowl. Do not use chemicals incompatible with the plastic components for cleaning.
The customer must confirm the chemical compatibility of the in-line strainer components for their use.
